Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.

"Interesting exhibit "
reviewed 5 days ago by stephenb522015
A unique exhibit. A stunning stained glass globe, it gives a really good view of the 1935 world. The chamber itself feels unique, and has interesting acoustics.
All visits are by guided tour and the tour guides enthusiasm showed. Tour lasts about 20 minutes and is great value.
Very stunning, venerable & lovely church. Beautiful architecture, nice location. You do NOT need to pay to tour this or any sites in Boston. Get a good map, use your GPS on your cell phone. Take a bus (or Lyft). Double check on the times it is open though!
An interesting menu, including some genuine Venetian dishes. The duck pate starter was superb ... very unusual ... I liked it so much I may even try making it at home! (What’s the top layer?!)
Glad we booked as, although it is quite sizeable, it was very busy. The service was efficient and pleasant.
I have been there for dinner and it was really great; the atmosphere at the restaurant is great, it’s a nice place and the service is high quality.
The food was great including the appetizers as well as the main course; good sirilion fillet
It’s not a cheap restaurant but worth each dollar !!!
"What an amazing place - everything is delicious "

Went with a friend to catch up over seafood. I had never heard of the place and I stopped by to check out out. The waitress was very kind and we sat at the bar. The atmosphere is very cosy and while I don't like to eat at bars on stools, somehow this didn't disturb me this time. We ordered...
Excellent food, but preposterous prices. Wait staff promotes truffled dishes without so much as a wink or a grin. Upscale decor, and if you need a break from restaurants where even big spenders sport denim and sweatshirts, you'll feel comfortable wearing business casual or better here.
Absolute great experience at the Mandarin Oriental Boston.Service is outstanding, the room was fantastic, location, everything that you expect from a top 5 star hotel was delivered above expectations!We stayed there for 10 days and it was one of the best experiences that we had!
Across the street from the Boston Public Library and steps from the T, Newbury Street, Copley Square, etc. A gorgeous walk to the Commons, and close to one of my favorite walks in the world, especially in snow, the boulevarded portion of Comm Ave.
I had an emergency trip that landed me in Logan Airport at 5:01 a.m. and the...
This hotel is in a very convenient location for seeing Boston, which its probably its biggest advantage. The rooms are average sized and slightly dated. Despite being in the center of the city, the room was reasonably quiet. Wifi speeds were good. It offered a good value compared to other hotels in the area, so I would stay again.
We stumbled on Loews out of a desire to respect those hotel workers on strike in Boston. I was booking last minute and my go-to hotels were either striking or already booked. When my husband sent me a link to Loews I rolled my proverbial eyes: I was traveling alone with my college seeking kiddo (with some mobility issues) and...

Our company recently held a large event in the Ballroom of the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston and many of us stayed at the hotel. It was a great success and the planning and execution of a very complicated event were made so much easier by the amazing staff who were with us every step of the way making certain...
